Long ago, but not so very long ago,
The world was different, oh yes it was.
You settled down and you build a town and made it live,
And you watched it grow, it was your town.

Time goes by, time brings changes, you change too.
Nothing comes that you can't handle so on you go.
You never see it coming, when the world caves in on you,
On your town, there's nothing you can do.

Main street isn't main street anymore.
Lights don't shine as brightly as they shone before.
To tell the truth, lights don't shine at all,
In our town.

Sun comes up each morning, just like it's always done,
Get up, go to work, and start the day.
You open up for business, it's never gonna come,
As the world roles by, a million miles away.

Main street isn't main street, anymore.
No one seems to need us, like they did before.
It's hard to find a reason left to stay,
But it's our town, We love it anyway.

Come what may, it's our town.
